At AIA Europe's Spring 2019 Conference – Livability in Copenhagen – We will explore How it works, Why it works, Where it works, When it works, and …sometimes doesn’t.
We will explore key factors that affect many European cities to which the city of Copenhagen has developed a unique response.
Sustainability, Live/work balance, the cycling culture, designing with acoustics, lighting and water, the city’s design culture, and exploring public and private space in the city.
To mimic life in this engaging city, we will explore the city by boat, bike, walking tours and even a morning run. Lectures, cocktail hours and a gala dinner in locations throughout the city will inform your new perspective on Copenhagen.
The current conference itinerary is scheduled to achieve 15 LUs, but is subject to change.
Upon arrival to conference registration, each guest will be given a 72 hour transit pass called Copenhagen City Pass for transportation to conference events. It is advised to download the Danish Transport mobile app, Rejseplannen for accurate travel information regarding buses and trains: Apple Google Play
